's big democracies are in gridlock over debt, not just the u.s., india, japan, and the world needs leadership right now. there is a possibility for a robust recovery, not just in the u.s. if the u.s. would exercise leadership here we would lead the rest of the world. we need a market credible $4 trillion deal. while you can't guarantor there would be a big commeck recovery. at the end of the day it increases the probability that that could happen. during the course of that, we need to make sure we a avoid the fiscal cliff and we shouldn't be having this debt ceiling every nine months that does not contribute to market stability. if we're going to have a $4 trillion deal we need certainty in the taxes and the entitlement spending side. both of those things need to happen. markets need to be able to look at it and say it is for certain. when we do look at federal health spending i would like to see a short-term and long-term approach here. on the short-term side of this, there is only one way to get this thing done, it seems to me by december 31 and have any kind of market credibilit
